A darkly stunning examination of one woman's grief. Didion's sparse and direct writing style is always a joy to read, even when the subject matter is dark. Highly recommended for fans of Joan Didion and anyone who is interested in writing about grief that is honest without being syrupy.

It's really quite simple:
Just as one would expect from Didion - Nothing like the Didion one has read before.
Get - Read - Cry - Love.
(Repeat as necessary)

You'll thank yourself for it.

"Synopsis" by ,

From a former poet laureate, a new collection of essays delivering a gloriously unexpected view from the vantage point of very old age.

 

 

"Synopsis" by , A New York Times Notable Book

From one of our most powerful writers, a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter.

Richly textured with memories from her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion is an intensely personal and moving account of her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness and growing old.

As she reflects on her daughter’s life and on her role as a parent, Didion grapples with the candid questions that all parents face, and contemplates her age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights—the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, “the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning”—like The Year of Magical Thinking before it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profound.
